02 / Overview

Overview of the Acute Mental Health Inpatient Care,Lincoln County Hospital project

DSSR provided full MEP design duties, through to stage 6 commissioning, for a new standard of acute mental health inpatient care in Lincoln and Boston. This £37 million programme creates new ensuite bedrooms for patients at the inpatient mental health units. This will end the use of dormitory accommodation.

Crucially, the design of the new wards has been shaped by feedback from patients, carers, and staff as part of an inclusive ‘Building Together’ construction programme.

The new development consists of two new acute inpatient wards at the Peter Hodgkinson Centre in Lincoln. The facility will provide ensuite accommodation to all patients, ending the use of dormitory-style accommodation across the trust’s sites.

The new wards will be named ‘Ellis’ (Male Ward) and ‘Castle’ (Female Ward), and will replace the ‘Conolly’ and ‘Charlesworth’ wards at the existing premises on the Lincoln County Hospital site.

The two new 19-bed wards will provide separate ensuite accommodation for our patients. Patients will have ground-floor access to a courtyard area for peace and quiet. The outdoor environment offers major benefits to our patients helping to support their recovery.
